PMID:  21040394     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
OBJECTIVE: To determine in a group of pregnant women if vitamin D status, based on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) concentration, was associated with a subsequent risk of pre-eclampsia or adverse pregnancy outcomes.
DESIGN: Prospective cohort study.
SETTING: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (49°N).
POPULATION: Women attending a specialist antenatal clinic because of clinical or biochemical risk factors for pre-eclampsia (n = 221).
METHODS: Serum 25OHD concentration measured between 10 and 20 weeks of gestation.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Pre-eclampsia and composite adverse pregnancy outcomes.
RESULTS: Of the women, 78% were vitamin D insufficient (25OHD <75 nmol/l) and 53% were vitamin D deficient (25OHD <50 nmol/l). There was no difference in the rates of pre-eclampsia, gestational hypertension, preterm birth or composite adverse pregnancy outcomes by 25OHD concentration.
CONCLUSIONS: Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency were common in a group of women at high risk of pre-eclampsia; however, it was not associated with subsequent risk of an adverse pregnancy outcome.
